I wonder if this is a real advancement, or show. Obviously looks super hot, but... They always say with an underpowered piece, that its a "force multiplier" in other words how many troops you take out of action to deal with the injured. I'm not all that sure it applys to those who don't have our values, but way above my pay grade to evaluate. I do know from experiance, that it's easier to teach, and qualify troops on lower recoil weapons when they have not had previous experiance with rifles. Also have a weight savings from both the weapon and ammmo with the new systems. My belief remains: I would rather face someone with a space age wonder weapon than a motivated troop with a WWII bolt action rifle.

Ask Maj Raghead from Ft Hood, that is what he used in pistol form.

If your interested FN has a pistol they call the Five-Seven it fires the round in question and in most normal states it can carry 20 rounds in one magazine. And the same firearm was also used in the movies "WAR" with Jet Li. The rounds are also pretty pricey.
